My paintings examine unfamiliar spaces and the emotive power of the interplay of forms. I work with the combination of color and form as a visual, abstract documentation of life. Layers of Venetian plaster , raw pigment, and wax troweled onto wood panels build up to create uncanny spaces. I paint to find unexpected beauty in the relationships between rich textures and primitive marks.
I am interested in the way multiple perspectives live, move and shift within the same moment. My paintings explore varied and dispersed points of view simultaneously. Through the interplay of the rich texture of plaster, a limited color palette I create spaces which invite multivarious subjects andsubjectivities to interact. The spaces are different snapshots of a day, a mintue’s drive on the interstate, a set of lines in the sky.
I hold a BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Printmaking and spent a year at The Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughn Ireland. My studio is in NE Minneapolis where I also run a small business doing specialized wall treatments and murals commercially and residential. I have been a member of Rosalux Gallery since 2002.
